Now the only question is how long it will take before Mark Prior is brought up. It’s a tricky question, though. Juan Cruz has pitched well and doesn’t really deserve to lose his spot in the rotation. On the other hand, the guy who really deserves to be pulled from the rotation, Jason Bere, has started his entire career. So what to do with him if Prior takes his place?
The Cubs have played well recently, and winning two out of three from the Cardinals was big. But, again, they need to take advantage against weak teams like the Brewers, which they didn’t do by losing yesterday. Hopefully, Hill will make an immediate impact and the Cubs will take the next three against the Brew Crew.
